Water companies in England and Wales have submitted their business plans for 2020 to 2025, as part of the ‘Periodic Review 2019’ (PR19).
Water companies are major private investors in water and environmental management in the UK investing more than £1bn per year in environmental improvement. They play a pivotal role in the stewardship of the environment.
We believe that nature should be at the heart of water companies’ business plans. Therefore, in May 2017 we published a set of key priorities that we want to see reflected in these plans, to benefit both customers and the natural environment that we all cherish. In January 2019 Blueprint for Water published our review of the submitted plans to see how they reflect those priorities.
